Death of Gateway Academy student. School tells of its ‘devastation’

FOLLOWING the medical emergency at The Gateway Academy on Thursday 2nd March involving a student who became very unwell in a PE lesson it is with great sadness that we inform our community that she died in hospital last night. Members of staff attended hospital with the family and with members of the Tilbury community, are reaching out to provide continuing support. 

Staff, students and the whole GLC community are devastated at this time. Students and staff who are most affected have access to professionals who are providing guidance and support; enabling us to give emotional support to the children and each other through this difficult time. 

The medical team at the Gateway Academy, paramedics and doctors worked tirelessly to support the student before the air ambulance transferred her to King’s College hospital.
